Dome-shaped macula (DSM) is characterised by a convex anterior bulging of the macular area. It can further get complicated by accumulation of subretinal fluid (SRF). Foveal cysts that are bilateral, in a setting of DSM, are an entity not yet reported. Management options for DSM with SRF showed variable success. Topical carbonic anhydrase inhibitors (CAIs) have been successful in treating certain macular pathologies. The authors report a rare case of bilateral intraretinal foveal cyst in a myopic child with DSM with favourable response to topical dorzolamide. Topical CAIs may be considered a safe and effective option in such cases.
